The Festival du nouveau cine´ma (FNC) has been shining the spotlight on experimental cinema for over 40 years. Werner Schroeter was our guest in the ’70s, and in 2013 the Festival awarded a Louve d’honneur to renowned experimental filmmaker Jonas Mekas. The FNC continues its mission of showcasing hybrid works using experimental, expanded and multi-disciplinary cinematic forms. The FNC Lab section, where these innovative practices take centre stage, features a series of much-awaited events that uphold the experimental genre, in which artists and filmmakers call on a variety of techniques to make audiences question and reflect on the fundamental identity of cinema in order to propel it forward.
